Caption: African bullfrog (Pyxiecephalus adspersus). One of the largest frogs in Africa, the male of this sub-saharan species grows to as much as 23 centimetres and is large enough to prey on small mammals and reptiles. When food is scarce or the population large, they even resort to cannibalism. They aestivate (lay dormant during the dry season) and build a cocoon to help prevent water loss, emerging to spawn after the first rains. Their preferred habitat is low-lying open grassland.
